AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine Attorney General William Schneider says there's a new telephone scam claiming consumers are being threatened with legal action.

Schneider says the calls are threatening, telling the consumer to dial another number to resolve the matter or face a lawsuit.

His advice: Hang up.

Schneider says to make note of the incoming phone number if it shows up on a phone but don't engage the caller. He says that while it's tempting to try to figure out who's calling, he says it's not worth the risk of becoming a target of fraud.
